A catalog for the Line-O-Scribe printing press as manufactured by the Morgan Sign Machine Company. This was a machine intended for use in retail stores to allow them to create product signs ("show cards") without employing a professional show card writer. It dates from some point after 1948 (when Morgan acquired the Line-O-Scribe product) but probably before 1963 (because it does not use ZIP codes). As reprinted here it also includes two later supplemental items: an order blank and a...

It was printed by The Faithorn Company, Chicago (attested from other sources as printers, not jewelry wholesalers), and is not a paragon of the printer's art.

This specimen was produced at a point of great change in the American typefounding industry. The owners of the Central Type Foundry (Schraubstadter and St. John) had purchased the Boston Type Foundry in 1888. This specimen book, a joint effort of the two type foundries, is dated 1892. That is the year in which both companies were sold into the newly formed American Type Founders amalgamation. The bulk of the specimen book itself makes no reference to ATF. However, a final page (which is...

Issue No. 27 of the journal "Typographer's Digest," edited by Alexander Lawson. This issue was devoted to Frederic W. Goudy. It is notable for including the text of a letter by Goudy to Sol Hess describing his methods ("The Goudy Method"); this contains the only published information on the way in which Goudy determined the justification (lining and fitting) of his matrices. It also includes a delightful "Refusal Order Blank" made up by Goudy's friends to celebrate...

An 8-page French-folded brochure for the Lanston Monotype Type-&-Rule Caster, with specimens. A brochure in this format (which opens up in two folds to a poster) is difficult to present in single-page scans. The opened first fold is scanned as two pages. The top and bottom sections of the opened second fold (which constitute a 4-page poster) are scanned in three pages each (left, middle, right) as the specimens in them span the division between the left and right halves. The entire document...

A 16 page brochure for the Material Making Machine. It consists primarily of showings of the various types of strip and decorative material it could cast; it contains little technical detail. It is undated. (Richard L. Hopkins, in "Tolbert Lanston and the Monotype" (Tampa, FL: University of Tampa Press, 2012), p. 78) dates the introduction of the Material Making Machine to 1923. The underlying patent for fusion casting was issued to Amos L. Knight in 1917, but was filed in 1914.)...
